Corvus edithae (Somali Crow)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Somali crow, or dwarf raven (Corvus edithae), is approximately the size (44–46 cm in length) of the carrion crow, Corvus corone but with longer bill and somewhat more brownish cast to the feathers, especially when worn. This species occurs principally in Somalia, Djibouti, the Ogaden and the Northern Frontier District in the Horn of Africa, and can be distinguished from the larger brown-necked raven C. ruficollis by its call, appearance and differences in its behaviour. The voice is described as a harsh "caw" rather like the rook, Corvus frugilegus of Eurasia.
